to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 

to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 

are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  maiginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the

-Remonflrance  unto  us,  That'if  ahy  Thing  con- 
jcerning  Religion  might  feem  to  be  added,  (for  ^e 
Prince  faid,  that  nothing  was   fo  added  indeed) 

.  wherowith  his  Majefty  was  no):  formerly  acquaint- 
ed, that  it  was  not  the  Prince  nor  his  Grace's 
Taiijt;  Nay,  in  one  of  the  Articles  fought  by -the 
Pitpf,  and  cocnprel^nded  in  the  Prince  his  private 
ProDiife,  a  ^jreat  Conteflation  arofe  between  the 
•£ari  of  Brifiol  and  the  Duke;  wherein  his  Gracp 
iaid,  he  {hewed  himfelf  refolute,  which  the,  Earf 
termed  Opintonaftre,  alledging,  That  the  Point  in 
Queftion  was  already  agreed  upon,  at  leaft,  in  In- 
tention, between  the  two  Kings.  This  the  Duk« 
denied,  and  was  fithence  juftined  in  his  Demal  bj 
the  King's  Majefty.' 

'  And  now  the  Junilo  of  Divines  are  met  to- 

f  ether,  to  refolve  the  Cafe  of  Confcience  upon  that 
reparation  and  Predifpofition  of  Things  and  hSti'- 
ons,  whether  their  King  might  lafely  take  the  Oath  ? 
At  this  his  Highnefs  enquired.  What  that  meant  ? 
But  Anfwer  was  made.  That  it  was  only  for 
Form  Sake',  and  fhould  not  ijelay  the  Buiineg  the 
Length  of  one  Hour;  as  the  Prince  was  pleafed  to 
tell  us :  But  the  Truth  is,  this  Committee  was  the 
Conde's  Wheels,  where\nth  he  fet  the  whole  Framf 
of  the  Bufmefs  backward  and  forward  at  his  own 

*  By  this  Time,  the  Prince  hath  gone  thro'  all 
,  the  Articles  tt^ether  with  the  reft  ofthe  Commit- 

tee, and.  leaving  three  undecided.  That  of  the 
Church  ;  that  of  the  Nuife ;  and  that  of  the  Edu- 
cation of  the  Children  ;  which  his  Highnefs  referv- 
eA  untilhe  fhould  fpeak  with  the  King  himfelfj 
-and.  going  with  the  Conde  in  his  Coach,  he  ac- 
quainted him  with  his  Refblution  for  thofe  three 
Particulars  ;  which,  the  Conde  writing  dowq  in  a 
Pair  of  Tab^fe-Books,  faidj  That  now  the  Bufinefs

was  in  k  Vetter  Wa^  than  ever  :    It  was  a  Match,  *■■  »'  J*nK* 
and,  without  more  ado,  fl»e  was  his  Wife."  i«j. 

*  But,  the  very  next  Morning,  came  the  Mar- 
quis of  Montei  Ciaroi  artd  the  Conde  de  Girtdtuntre, 
and  fpake  to  the  Prince  of  the  fame  Match)  as  of 
a  new  Thing)  and  told  him  plainly.  That  Unlefs 
his  Highnefs  came  to  all  die  Conditions  of  the  Dif-* 
perifatitins)  as  they  were  fent  froih  Rome;,  clearly 
and  entirelyj  nothing  would  be  ddne;  foi  they  had 
no  Power  to  remove  or  alter  fo  much  as  a  Word  of 
ftlfe  Latin:  Whereupon  his  Highnefs  was  juftly 
diftaAed,  and  offered  to  break ;  for,  as  hitnfelf  told 
us,  this  was  the  iirft  Time  he  faw  clearly  they 
wanted  to  juggle  with  him;  for  the  which  Altera- 
tion and  Change  of  Counfets  all  the  Excufe  they 
offered  was  this.  That  they  were  Beafls,  and  blind^ 
apd  could  not  read  their  own  Language.' 

'  The  Prince,  thus  refolved  to  take  his  Leave,  the 
Conde  ftays  him  with  a  double  Propofition ;  Either 
to  fend  to  Romi  to  have  the  Articles,  as  they  were 
agreed  upon,  confirmed  by  the  Conclave;  or  elle  to 
lend  to  Englandy  that  the  King  our  Mafl'er  might 
be  drawn  unto  them.  Word  for  Word,  as  they  came 
,  fihoin  Rtmt:  To  the  which  his  Highnefs  returned 
Ais  Anfwei-,  That  he  accepted  of  both  Offers,  as 
in  due  Form  and  Manner ;  that  they  fhoiild  fend 
,to  RonUy  and  himfelf  would  repair  into  Englnn^^ 
to  difpofe  his  Father  to  this  Eflefb,  and  to  facili- 
tate the  Negotiation.  And  here  the  Prince, declared 
his  Refolution  to  procure  either  a  fjir  Breach  or  a 
fpeedyDifpatch.  TheConde,findingthis  to  amount 
to  a  Breach,  thereupon  made  a  new  Propofition, 
That  the  Prince  would  be  plcafed  to  ftay  twenty 
Days,  until  our  Mafter's  Anfwer  might  be  bad 
from  England' 

.  '  Here  the  Prince  how  the  Earl  of  Brj^fl 
bad  laid  unto  him.  That  this  Was  but  a  mere  Punc- 
tilio; and  that  he  received  it  from  very  good 
■Han^,  that  if  his,  Highnefs  made  Shew  to  yield 
unto  this  Propofition,  he  fbould  not  be  tied  thefe^ 
'Wito;  but  (faid "his  Highnefs)  whwi'Ihad  oncede-

**>l'  -       tUio,  but  was  feft  bound  to  real  Pprformance.' 

^  After  this  the  Condc  and  the  Earl  defired  the 
Prince  to  fpeak  ho  more  of  his  Return  in  this  Sort ; 
for  if  he  did,  they  would  quarrel  with  it  as  amount' 
ing  to  a  kind  of  Menace  or  Threat ;  whereupoa 
the  B.ukc  anfwercd,  That  this  they  could  not  do^ 
becaufe  the  Prince  bare  hioifelf  as  Xtxt  well  latisfied 
with  the  Journey,  and  no  way  diftalled'  at  all  with 
any  Occurrences^in  Spain;  but  troubled  only  with 
that  clogging  of  Articles  which  hap[}ened  in  Rsmet 
But  the  Earl  of  Briflol  replied.  That  he  knew  from 
good  Hands,  that  if  his  Highnefs  fVayed,  they  would 
prefently  fail  to  Bufmefa.  The  Prince  then  ref<dvB«l 
to  ftay,  upon  Condition,  that  Sir  Francis  Cettitigle» 
might  be  difpatched  away  within  two  Days  ;  and  ' 
a  Courier  might  overtake  him  with  the  Articles 
that  fliould  be  fent  after,  as  foan  as  ever  they  could 
be  made  ready,  which  his  Highnefs  well  hoped 
might  have  been  the  very  next  Day  ;  his  Highnef* 
took  Care  hereby,  left  the  Health  of  his  Secretary, 
upon  whom  the  Difpatch  of  the  Bufinefs  whoUy 
depended,  might  be  impaired  with  any  extraordi- 
paiy  Riding  :  This  Condition  of  his  Highnefs,  al- 
though the  Conde  (to  gain  more  Time)  much  op- 
pofed,  and  would  have  Sir  Francis  ftaycd  there  un- 
til the  Anicles  Oiould  be  perfectly  digefted  ;  yet» 
^  the  Prince's  fixed  and  conftant  Refolution,  the 
Contrary  was  at  the  laft  obtained.  And  now  the 
Articles  are  laid  upon  the  Anvil  again,  and  the 
two  Days  of  their  Hammering  fpun  out  to  twenty  i 
.  '  at  the  End  whereof  they  brought  them  in  with  new 
Additions  and  Alterations,  hoping  that  his  High' 
nets,  through  Hafte  or  Unadv^cdnefe,  would  uut

But  the  Prince  read  thnn,  fotmd  out  the  Alttra-

■*  And  fo  the  Duke  went  back  to  the  Conde, 
who  prefently  required  what  Anfwer  he  had  receiv-

ed, and  if  they  had  given  him  any  other,  they  had 
not  fo  well  defcrved  that  great  Truft  and  Employ- 
nient  in  the  State,  which  the  King  bad  moftprudcnt-

Wliat  was  their  Anfwer  ?  Surely,  faid  the  Duke,  tQ 
hold  you  no  longer,  it  was  this.  That  I  fliould  re-

the  King  R>  commit  die  Infanta  untti  his  Higfaiic& 
freely  and  abfolutelva  without  Conditioni:  So  weuM 
lie  do,  if  he  were  King;  and,  as  he  was,  be  would 
do  fb,  if  the  King  was  thirty  Years  of  Age  |  but, 
being  a  Favourite,  to  anfwer  the  Anions  of  a  mi- 
nor King,  (although  he  cannot  deny  but  it  lies  in 
bis  Power)  yet  he  refolved,  the  In^nta  fliall  not

'  Thuj,  by  this  Time,  the  braveft  Prince  in  Eti'

Spain^  To  as  they  fcarce  beftow  a  Vifit  on  him  j  and 
the  Condt  came  very  feldom  at  him,  prctendmg, 
for  a  Reafoh,  that  his  Highnds  lookel  but  heavily 
on  him.  In  fine,  die  Duke  was  &in,  to  n^otiate 
the  Condeflii,  to  procure  her  hori  to  voudiiafe, 
now  and  then»  to  look  upon  his  Highnefs.* 

*  About  this  Place  the  Duke  de(£red  tousbowi

Conde,  when  in  the  good  Humcur,  told  hu  Grace^ 
That  now  certainly  it  was  to  t>e  a  Match,  and  that 
the  Devil  could  not  break  it.  The  Duke  replied, 
he  thought  fo  too ;  and  that  the  Match  had  need  be 
firm,  which  had  been  fevcn  Years  in  foldering.' 

*  The  Conde  denied  it,  and  faid  pisunly,  it  baii 
rot  been  really  intended  feven  Months.  The 
Duke  rejoined.  That  if  he  were  fure  of  that,  hc 
could  ingratiate  himfelf  very  much  wiA  his  Mat- 
ter, and  receive  many  Thanks  for  his  Journey  and 
Employment ;  if  he  could  make  it  appear  to  the 
King,  that  the  Marriage  was  the  Pnxluce  of  this

the  Dulce  defired  their  Lordfhips  to  take  into  Con- 

lideration,    whether    he    could  have 'justified  the 

leaving  out  any  of   the  Particulars  in  the  Niirrtf

The  Lords,  in  generalj  did  commend  the  fair 
Proceeding  of  the  Dulce  therein,  and  :^reed,  , 
*  That,  as  his  Grace  deferved  all  their  Thanks  for 
the  fame,  fo  he  had  doiie  ill  if  he  had  concealed 
any  Part  of  it.  That  their  Lordlhips  did  conceive 
that  it  was  an  Afpeifion  laid  upon  thtir  Houfe  by 
this  Complaint ;  becaufe  it  concerns  their  Lord-* 
ihips  nbt  to  fuffer  any  Thing  to  be  puhlickly  fpo- 
Icen,  in  their  Hearing,  in  Diftionour  of  fo  great  a 
•Prince  in  Amity  with  his  Majcfly.  And,  they 
ctmceive'that  nothing  then  delivered  did  concern 
that  King  particularly,  but  were  the  A<5b  of  his 
Officers  and  MinJllers  only.' 

Butt  f<»^  ^^  ^1  electing  of  Ms  Grace  in  thb 
Matter,  the  Lord-Keeper,  by  general  Confent* 
put  it  to  theQueftion,  *  That  the  Duke  did  deli- 
'  ver  nothing,  in  his  faid  NarratUn,  but  what  was 
fit  for  him  to  do,  and  what  the  Matter  led  hith 
unto;  which  was  unanimoully  agreed'  to.  And 
'  their  Lord&ips  alfo  agreed  to  fatisfy  his  Majeity 
herein  by  a  Ctmimittce  of  their  whole  Houfe;  and 
the  Prince  was  delired  to  intimate  this  theii  Requell 
to  the  King,  and  to  let  them  know  when  his  Ma- 
jedy  would  be  plcafed  to  admit  them  to  his  Prefence. 
The  Lord-Keeper  to  be  their  Speaker.' 

Then  tl}e  Houfe  was  moved  to  take  into  their 
.Copfideratton,  how  the  Spanijh  Ambaflador  cam* 
to  this  Knowledge :  But  the  Duke  requeued  ihelr

That  I  ever  ijleef/ud  more  the  Reputation  of  a  Man

isjhich,  I  did  hope,  he  would  well  perceive  by  what  I

your  Mcjeflj  had  juji  Caufe  never  again  to  cafi  fo  '

vines in  Matter  of  Cohfdence ;  and  therefore  it  could 
not  hut  be  a  Thing  of  great  Difficulty  to  perfuade  jam' 
Majeffy  and  your  Minfjfers,  that  a  Match  fhould  ht 
hearkened  unto,  much  lefs  defiredfrom  hence,  hut  upott 
the  fame  Terms  ;  the  very  Thought  and  Remtmhranct 
thereof  is  yet  unpkafing  /»  England  ;  So  tlsat^  to  deal 
plainly  ixiitb  him,  I  neither  found,  either  in  your  Ms- 
jefly,  or  in  the  Council,  any  Kind  of  Thought  or  Im- 
agination of  any  PoJJihillty  (f  having  any  juch  Motion

or  want  of  AffeSlion  in  your  Majejly  towards  Spain, 
iw  that  many  of  the  greatefl  or  principalieji  Perfans  in 
England  judged  not  the  Nearnefs  and  AlUance  with 
Spain  equally  valuable  with  any  other  in  Chriften- 
^om  ;  itit  that,  out  of  Diflq/lefulnefs  of  the  former 
jfnfwers  given  from  hence,  all  Expectations  of  any 
Buftnefs  of  this  Nature  were  ahfolutely  extinguiftied  ( 
arid  therefore  again  to  revive  it,  there  would  need 
more  than  ordinary  Endeavours^  or  ordinary  Aj^antel 
But  as  I  inew  this  Match  would  neither  want  tVelf 
Willers  nor  Affiflers,  and,  for  my  awn  Pari,  I  would 
freely  make  Prafi-ffwn,  that  no  Man  more  defired  it 
than  myfe^,  or  would  mors  willingly  employ  his  En-' 
deavours  for  the  Furtherance  thereof;  when,  by  def- 
tending  to  Particulars,  I  fhould  fee  that  both  in  re- 
gard to  the  Conditions  and  Affurance  of  ftneere  Pre-  . 
cteding,  the  Motion  was  worthy  and  proper  fir  a 
good  Servant  to  offer  it  unto  his  Majltr  ;  neither  Hten

The  Duie  replied,' That  any  Courfe  I  thought  fit

I  might  truly  underhand,  by  them,  all  Kirid  of  Scruple

That  it  appeared,  by  the  Earl  of  Brljuri  DJIpatdh,

not  prevail  ;  though  now  he  denied  it  again.  This 
appeareth  out  of  another  Difpatch  from  the  Earl  of

Prince,  *  That  when  it  was  noifed  he  ibould  be.

more  on  him  as  a  Son ;  tut  refleSi  all  his  royal 
thoughts  en  his  Sijfer,  and  the.  Wellfare  of  his  own 
^iates  and  Kingdoms' 

The  reft  of  this  Day  and  the  two  following  a  Conferane^ 
were  chiefly  taken  up  in   the  Conference  between  1i"«opoii- 
the  two  Houfes,  about  this  Grand  Affair^  as  the 
Journals  call  it :     And, 
■  March  5.    The  Archbifliop  of  Canterbury  made 
a  Report,  briefly,  of  what  had  pafled  at  it,  and  de- 
livered in  the  fteafons,  in  Writing,  from  the  Com- 
mons, to  fortify  their  Refolutions  to  advife  his  Ma— 
iefty  to  proceed  no  farther  in  the  Treaties  with  Spain: 
Which  were  thefe  : 

I.   »  It  is  obfcrved.  That  the  State  of  Spain,  not  The  Coauma]

Family,  which  other  Princes,  in  like  Cafe,  would 
have  demanded,  ^d  which  his  Majefty,  with  great 
Reafon,  might,  at  the  Beginning  of  this  Treaty, 
have  conceived  they  would  have  been  contented 
with,  have,  with  great  Vehemency,  upon  the  Ad- 
vantage of  having  the  Prince's  Perfon  in  their  Poflef- 
fion,  prefled  agenerd  Connivance  for  his  Majefly's

.they  expected,  as  well  appeareth,  a  Confequeocc of 
no  fmall  Mifchief/ 

II.  *  It  is  obfeivedi  that  during  the  Continuance 
of  this  Treaty,  and  by  reafon  of  the  fame,  the  Por 

Silh  Faction  have  exceedingly  increafed  in  thii 
Lealm,  both  in  Multitude  ^d  Boldnefs;  and 
whereas,  heretofore,  they  haye  been  divided  amongft 
themfelves  into  the  Party  of  Jefuits  depending  upr 
on  Spain,  and  the  fee  ular  Priefts ;  othen^ifc  they  are 
generally,  now,  firongly  united  together,  depend-:- 
ing  no  Ids  upon  Spain  fer  tempoiaf  ReTpe^,  than 
from  Rome  for  fpiritual ;  which,  confidering  the 
Houfe  of  Spdin  hath  been  always  a  capital  Enemy 
to  our  Religion,  to  encreafe  their  own  Greatnc&j 
.  by  extirpating  the  Proteftant  Party  in  ail  Place* 
vwhetc  they  can  prevail,  cannot  but  be  of  moft  dan-: 
gerous  Gonfequence  to  the  Safety  of  the  King  and 
this  Realm,  unlefs  Jiemedy  be  provided  with  Speed 
for  abating  that  Party  her?  at  home;  which  canr, 
not  be  during  the  Time  thefe  Treaties  are  oji  Foot.* 

III.  *  It  is  obferved,  that,  by  Advantage  of  thefe 
Treaties,  and  thereby  keeping  his  Majeffy  in  hope 
of  general  Peace,  they  have  conirarily,  under  Pre?i 
tence  of  affiftirtg  the  Emperor,  opprtslTeil  by  the

Safety  of  all  the  Profeflbrs  of  the  fame.'

Condition  to  the  weak  Hope  of  their  uncertain  and 
imperfed  Reflitution,  that  the  eldefl  Son  of  the 
Count  Palatine  Aiould  be  brought  up  in  the  Em-

all  as  heartily  as  J  can, 

I  alfa  give  my  particular  Thanks  to  the  Qenflemeif 
«f  the  Lower  Houfe  ;  for  that  I  heard,  when  feme 
would  have  cafl  feahujus  and  Deuhti  between  me  and 
my  People,  they  prefently  quelled  thofe  Atolinns ;  which 
eiherujife  might,  indeed,  have  hindered  the  happy 
Agreement  /  hope  to  find  in  this  Parliament.  Xou  giv( 
me  your  Advice  to  break  off"  both  the  Treaties,  as  Well 
concerning  the  Match  as  the  Palatinate  :  And  nevt 
give  me  Leave,  as  an  old  King,  to'propoun4  my  Doubts^

Honour,  in  my  Titles  and  Impreffes,  to  be  filled  Rex

As  concerning  the  Caufe  of  my  Children^  I  am  now

an  high  Jidtuntain,  though  he  had  not  Leave  to  fit  his 
Foot  on  it }  fo  it  would  be  a  great  Cemfurt  ta  me,  that 
God  would  but  fo  long  prolong  my  Days,  as  if  I  might 
not  fee  the  Reflitutien,  yet  at  Uafl  I  ought  be  affiared 
that  it  would  be  \  that  then  I  nught,  with  old  Simeon,

not  ta  enjoy  a  Furrow  af  Land  in  England,  Scotland, 
or  Ireland,  without  Refttlutian  of  the  Palatinate; 
And  in  this  Mind  I  will  live  and  die. 

But  let  me  acquaint  you  a  little  with  the  Difficul-

And  a  Doubt  arifing  amongft  their  Lordfiiun,  what 
the  King's  End  mizht.bc  in  this,   hia  Highnefs  . 
Ihought  fit  to  give  hfs  own  Sentc  thereof;  and,  ldl| 
the  like  Doubt  mi^t  alfo  have  arifen  aOioAgft 
them,  the  Lords  had  comttianded  him,  as  his  tligh- 
itefs  was  pleafed  to  lay,  to  declare  thus  much  unto 
Aem :    *  That  the  King  did  not  intend,  hy  that 

*  Dedaration,  that  we  Oiould  prefently  enter  into 
'  Conftderation  of  relieving  die  King's   Eftate; 

*  but,  to  let  us  fee  and  know,  that  he  could  not,  of 

*  himlelf,  and  upon  his  Eftate,  maintain  the  War 

*  that  might  enfue  upon  our  Advice;  but  intended 

*  that,  in  the  firft  Place,  we  Ihould  provide  for  the 

*  Defence  and  Safety  of  the  Kingdom;  and  when 
'  *  we  had  refblved  upon  that,  then  it  jhould  appeu 

»  a  Thing  of  no  great  Difficulty  to  fettle  the  King's 

*  Eftace  in  his  own  due  Time.'  Tliis  was  for  ^e 
Relblutiop  of  the  firH  Doubt. 

*  Another  Ddubt  his  Highneft  moved  tif  him- 
fUf,  That,  it  might  be,  fame  might  feU'  and  im^ne, 
that,  when  thefe  Things  Ihall  be  fetded,  the  King 
would  be  {low  to  call  us  together  a^tn.  For  this, 
his  tSghnefs  urged  them  to  call  tb  Mind  the  latter 
IVt  of  the  King's  laft  Anfwer,  '  That  it  fliould  not 
'  be  his  Fault  if  he  was  not  in  Love  wifli  Parlia- 

*  ments ;,  and  that,  having  Occafion  latdy  to  fenfl 
■  unto  ^e  King,  he  found  his  Majefty  willing  to 

*  call  us  often  to  meet  in  Parliament.' 

:  *  But  three  Thin«  his  Highnefs  wilhed  us  chiefly 
to  conlider :  firfi,  How  far  this  Bufinefs  was  gone 
DB  already.  SaonJly,  How  far  the  Year  was  run 
on.  Ana,  thirdly.  How  far  we  have  exafperattd

Trials,  i£c.  now  before  them,  we  Ihall  benn  witht 
the  Commons  at  this  Period,  to  avoid  Kepetitions.-- 
What  we  find  molt  remarkable  in  them  is,  that, 

March  It.  The  Chancellor  of  the  Exchequer 
reported  fome  Particulars  relating  to  the  King's.' 
prelentDebt^  occa^ned  by  fome  late  Expencea, 
and  particularly  the  long  and  deceitful  Treaties  he . 
had  entered  into,  *That,  from  the  Year  1617,  the 
>te  ef  ^  King  had  expended  145,000/.  in  Enteitaioi^^t 
"«■•  **''»«'*  of  Ambal&dors  fent  hither ;  Charge  of  the  naval " 
Expedition  againlV  the  Pirates ;  on  Ships  for  the, 
Prince's  Journey ;  Money  taken  up  by  the  Prince  . 
in  Spain,  iSc.  That  there  was  Scooo  /.  due  to  ttic . 
King  of  Dtnmari,   with  Intereft.     Towards  all 

thefe  — Here  is  an  Hiaha  for . 

what  had  been  given  towards  it.  ,  And  he  next . 
proceeds  to  acquaint  the  Houfc  what  Saving,  in 
f  tbepublic  Expences,  had  been  made;  as,  *  That, 

for  IrelanJ,  an  EUablifhment  was  begun  there,  both  ■ 
for  Church  and  Conunon- Wealth ;  which,  pur-  , 
fued,  would  fublifl;  of  itfelf:  For  the  Navy,  bdldes 
the  King's  Timber,  it  coft  50,000  /.  a  Year  j  re- 
duced thefe  laA  five  Years  to  30,000  /.  and  ten  -. 
new  Ships  built,  beHdes  many  Houfes  fbr  Man- 
zines :  For  the  Forts,  a  CommilEon  was  given  uis 
laft  Summer  to  two  Perlbns,  who  have  made  %  . 
Certificate  of  the  Charge  j  which  may  be  feea  - 
wrhen  the  Houfe  pleafes.* 

The  next  that  fpoke  was  Sir  Benjamin  Rudjran^ 
whp  proved,  in  the  fucceeding  Reign,  a  great  Ora- 
tor iit^c  Houfe :  he  faid,  '  That  Want  of  Parlia-

I/ords  to  join  with  them  In  a  Commit^  of  a 
Council  of  War,  to  devife  the  fitteft  Means  to  6-

with  fome  Relief  for  himfclf,  to  fweeten  hinii  hf       *    ^

There  were  many  Speakers  belides,  m  thefc  Af- 
£iirs,  all  tending  to  advife  the  King  to  dilTolve  the 
Treaties ;  and,  at  laft,  it  was  reTolved,  upon  the 
Queflion,  *  That,  in  purfuitof  their  Advice,  upon 
his  M^efty's  Declaration  to  break  the  Treaties, 
they  would  be  ready  to  affift  him,  in  a  parliamen- 
tary Manner,  with  their  Fortunes  and  Abilities.' 
This  was  carried  without  one  Negative  Voice : 
But  the  Refult  of  all  thefe  Refolutions  will  appear 
in  the  Aibfequent  Proceedings  of  the  Lords. 

March  13.  After  Ibme  public  and  private  Bills 
were  read,  his  Royal  Highnefs  acquainted  the 
Houfe,  That  his  Majefty  was  pleaTed  the  Com-' 
tnictees  of  both  Houfes  Ihould  attend  him  the  next 
Day,  at  ffTiitehall,  at  Two  In  the  Afternoon,  in 
order  to  deliver  their  Declaration.  And  a  Preamble 
to  it  being  thought  ncceflary  by  the  Lords,  the 
lame  was  communicated,  by  Meflafe,  to  the  Com- 
mons, and  approved  of  by  that  Houft.    ^ccorij-

great  a  Matter,  at  Uofi  to  make  a  goad  Bmitmng  of  f^n.  n  jmki  L. 
tht  War  ;  for  vjhat  the  End  will  be^  God  Jnmii.  »S»j. 

So,  »n  tbt  ather  Part^  I  gave  yauThanis  far  jeur 
general  Offtr^  hy  which  yau  did  engage  yaitrfelves,  in 
yeur  Lives  ami  Eftates,  which  is  more  ihanfarty  Sub- 
fidies,  if  you  had  named  them^  and  mare  warth  than 
a  Kingdam ;  far  the  Strength  af  a  King,  next  under 
the  Prateeiian  af  God,  Jlandi  in  the  Hearts  af  his 
Peaple.  And  ImUft  needs  fay,  in  this  Particular,  it 
is  witbaut  Example,  that  evur  any  Parliament,  far  a 
Beginning,  gave  ta  a  King  fi  great  a  Supply  to  h: 
levied  in  fa  Jbart' a  Time,  This  may  well  ftrve  far 
a  Preparatian  :  And,  for  my  Partyfirjl,  con/idering 
your  general  Offer,  (which  is  ten  Times  mere  to  me 
than  all  Subfidles)  and,  next,  confidering  that  thefg 
Particulars,  coming  from  you,  be  as  much  as  at  once 
yau  are  able  to  pay  in  fo  Jhort,  a  Time,  being  within  a  , 
Tear,  and  as  much  as  may  be  well  exptiled :  There- 
fire,  ii/ith  as  much  Lave,  and  as  great  Thanks,  as  a 
laving  and  kind  King  can  give  to  fi  loving  and  du- 
iifttl  Peaple,  I  thank  you  far  your  Offer,  and  da  ac-  , 
tep  it. 

I  told  yau  heferty  that  I  wauld  never  have  craved 
your  Advice  to  rejeit  it,  andfo  put  a  Scorn  upon  you: 
Think  me  not  that  Man. 

It  is  true,  I  think  no  wife  King  can  undertake  f» 
great  a  Bargain,  but  he  mujl  well  bethink  himfelf  he- 
fere-hand:  And  I  account  it  better  that  a  King  ad- 
vife  well  before  he  take  a  Refotuiion,  than  advtfe  rajb- 
h,  and  after  repent.  Therefore,  my  Lards  and  Gen- 
tlemen,f  declare  unta  you.  That  as  I  am  willing  to 
fallow  your  Advice  in  the  annulling  and  Breach  of  the 
two  Treaties,  both  af  the  Match  and  of  the  falati-  ' 

tax.t\  fo,  en  the  other  Part,  I  affure  myfelf,  you  will 
wake  goad  what  yau  hirue  faid.  That  what  you  adrixfe 
me  unto,  you  will  afjyt  me  in, '  with  your  Wifdam,  and 
Council,  and  Farces,  if  need  require. 

I  pray  you  have  a  charitable  Opinion  af  me,  as 
you  are  to  have  ^>f  a  King  who  hath  ft  long  ruled  anct 
gtvemed  over  you  ;  and  I  may  vaunt  myfelf  thus  far  ■ 
to  have  dtne  it  with  Juftice  and  Peace  :  But,  as  I

■'  '  tn  December  1620,  the  Lord  Vifcouiit  Mart-

'made  with  Mr.  Evelyn,  to  ferve  his  M^efty.  yearly

'befides  60  Lafis  of  Salt-Petre,  which  woiild  have

Parliaments ;  and  that  furely  thisLord,  of  all  others, 
loved  them  not;  becaufe  he  cafl  himfelf  into  dark 
Mifts,  when  he  fhould  meet  them  ;  Nefiio  qvid 
Peccati  portat  tfta  Purgatis.  This  argues  much 

'  Then  ht  nominated  his  Witneflcs;  which,  he 
faid,  were  withgut  Exception.' 

'  This  Bribe  is  proved  by  Hide,  Daws,  Bijhaf, 
and-by  Abraham  Jacob:  The  laft  is  a_Witnefs  with 
a  Witnefs.' 

'  *  For  yacab  blanched  his  Bribe  as  well  as  he 
could,  and  was  taken  in  three  notorious  Falfities.' 

1.  *  Beingcharged,  that  dieMoney  wasddiver- 
ed  to  him  by  Hide,  he  vowed  he  had  never  received 
itj   yet,  being'confronted  with /fii^ir,  he  confeffci 

■      it:— There  was  one.' 

2.  '  He  pretended  he  had  received  the  Money, 
bnt  gave  his  Bond  for  it.  Hide  affirming  to  his 
Face,  the  Bond  was  for  other  Money,  and  no 
Bond  at  all  for  this;  then  hclikewifcconfefled  thisr 
-There  were  two.'

This  Anfwcr,  being  read  and  approved,  was  fent 
to  the  Lord-Treafurer.  A  Memorfrndtrm  is  madei 
That  the  Earl  of  Bridgewater,  one  of  the  Com*

any  from  the  Lord -Treafurcr  attended  with  Inter- 
rogatories to  be  exhibited  by  his  Lordfliip  to  the

the  Lords  agreed,  for  gaining  of  Time,  to  fwear'

'  He  is  very  well  afTurcd,  that  as  his  general 
Courfei  in  all  Bargains  of  the  like  Nature  ^r  tJis 
Xing,  hath  been  to  look  to  his  own  Duty  and  the

or  Reward  from  them:  For  thotigji,  at.firft,  they 
demanded  of  his  M^efly  a  vcr;'  great  Stim,  pre- 
tending, that  the  Interruption  ihey  complained 
■  of  was  10,000/.  Difadvantage  to  them  in  their 
firft  Year  only  j  yet,  upon  good  Reafons,  fliewed 
by  the  Lord-Tr^urer,  on  his  Majefty's'  Behalf, 
they  were  brought  to  accept  of  9,500  /.  wheixof, 
though  they  earnellly  prefled  to  haw  prefent  Satif- 
fadion,  yet  he  over-ruled  them  to  take  it  in  nine 
Years  and  an  Half,  (which  was  not  worth  more  , 
.  than  50CO  /.  in  hand)  and  that,  alfo,  to  be  in  full 
.  SatisfaiSiun  of  all  their  Demands,  not  for  one  Year, 
but  for  the  whole  Term  of  nine  Years  and  an  Half;

more  advantageous  Affignment  for  the  King,  than 
rite  former  was :  So,  although  there  were  feveral 
Orders  figned,  as  if  the  Money  had  been  paidim* 
mediat;dy  out  of  the  Exchequer:  yet  that  was  done* 
of  Neceflity,  to  enable  the  Arildng  Tallp,  for  the 
Tellers  Charge  and  Difcharge,  as  the  Form  of  die 
Exchequer  required,  without  ifluing  any  Money  at 
all :  So  that  it  will  appear  upon  Record,  this  Charg« 
'  upon  the  Lord-Trcafurer  is  wholly  miftaken ;  and 
that  he  was  fo  fu  from  paying  fo  much  ready  Mo- 
ney zs  he  is  charged  widi^  that  he  paid  no  ready 
Money  at  all,  but  by  Afl^nment;  which  he  made

did  furrender,  up  hisLeafe;  which,  he  had  procured 
to  no  other  End,  but  to  fecure  the  Payment  of 
theDebtsowing  tohi^by  theKing.  Afterwards, 
it  is  true,  his  Majelly  granted  a  new  Leafe  of  d>e 
Sugar-Farm  to  the  Lord-Treafur's  Ufe,  at  the 
Rent  of  2000  L  per  Annum;  in  the  granting  where- 
of his  Majefty  was  truly  infonncd  of  die  State  of  ^

of  Liveries,,,  by  the  new  Inftru£lions,  he  faith. 
That,  ever  till  the  Inftru^tionof  1618,  the  Suitor 
might  continue  his  Livery,  either  with'  the  Mafter 
or  Surveyor;  and  the  Mdler's  Fees  for  fuch  Con- 
tinuance was  ever  ten  Shillings.  The  Inflru^ions 
of  t6l8  appropriated  the  Continuance  only  to  the 
Surveyor,  which  was  an  Encroachment  by  the  Sur- 
veys: upon  the  Mafter;  now  the  new  Inflfu£tions 
enjoin  the  Continuances  to  be  with  bothj  forwhii:h 
the  Mafter  taketh  no  other  Fee  than  ten  Shillings, 
which  was  the  ancient  Fee  for  Continuances  taken 
by  all  Mafters  before  him:  And,  for  Tenders,  the 
Mafter  doth  now  take  b^t  Jive  Shillings  j  whereas 
the  ancient  Fee  b  ten  Shillings.* 

*  By  .the  Continuance  before  bothHoules,  Men 
•  ve  rather  forced  to  fue  out  their  Liveries  to  Uie  Be-

Bialce  Wardftiips  concealed  by  the  Courfe  of  the

hopes  to  prove  clearly^  that  there  hath  been  no  fuch^ 
wilful  Negligence  as  is  alledged ;  for  tho'  it  be  true,'- 
that  the  Officers  of  the  Ordnance*  always  oppofing 
that  Book  of  the  Commiffioners,  would  never  fue- 
out  the  two  Warrants  thereby  required,  the  one  of 
13,640  /.  14  i.  2  d.  for  Supply  pf  the  Stores,  and 
the  other  of  3000  /.  per  Annum  for  the  Ordinary  j 
yet  there  have  been  other  Privy  Seals  of  the  fame 
Nature  fued  out,  whereupon  hath  been  ilTued  to 
that  Office,  fince  that  Book  of  the  Commiifioneri 
was  delivered,  as  follows,  »;«,  for  the  Supply  of 
the  Stores,  11,096/.  171.  iid,  which  Sums  want 
^ot  much  of  the  Commiffioners  Preparations,  con- 
fidering  that  the  ordinary  Quarter-Books  are  yeC 
unpaid  for  a  Year  and  a  Quarter  j  all  which  argue 
tio  wilful  Negligence  in  the  Payments,  howfoever 
the  Officers  have  difpofed  of  the  Monies ;  nor  any 
great  UnfurniDiing  of  the  Stores,  which,  if  they 
have  lefsProportion  of  fome  Stores  of  Provifions  than 
were  fet  down  in  the  Commiffioners  Books,  yet 
they  have  more  of  other  Stores  of  Provifions,  which 
have  fmce  been  thought  more  uieful  and  more  ne* 

As  to  what  concerns  neglecting  the  Supplies  for 
Gun-powder,  the  Lord-Treafurer  faith,  '  That  the 
£argains  with  Evelyn  were  made  in  the  Lprd  Man~ 
dtvdli'i  Time,  who  continued  in  the  Office  the  firft 
five  Months  after  ;  in  which  Time  Evelyn  ferved

Friends  ;  but  this  was  ra|her  a  Propofttion  than  any 
(ettl«d  Refirfution  or  ConcluHon ;  For  the  Farmers 
doubting,  left,  by  this  Pretence,  fome  Partners 
.  might  be  put  on  tbem  with  whom  they  were  un- 
willing to  join,  delircd  the  Lord  TreaAir^,  that 
they  might  make  Choice  of  their  own  Partners, 
and,  if  dieir  Farms  profpered,  they  would  be  thank- 
ful unto  his  Lordihip,'

Requcft  of  the  Merchants,  the  Lord  Treafurer  wa- 
ved his  Propofuion  of  having  the  Difpofal  of  any 
Parts  in  the  Farm  ;  which  appeareth  not  only  by 
die  plain  and  exprefs  Teftiinony  of  many  Witncfles,

*■  "^*°" '' fii'^'j  April  i^y  i6a2,  was  by  him  allowed,  and 
«"4-        Wanant  figned  by  him  to  the  King's  Reracmbran-- 
cer  to  take  purity' accordingly/ 

1.  *  When  tbe  Partners,  to  whom  five  of  thefc 
Parti  were  allotted,  fell  ofF,  and  would  not  gjve 
Security,  the  Patentees  refolving  to  take  thofe  Parts 
to  themfelvcB,  tendered  their  own  Security  to  the 
Lord  Treafurer,  and  he  agreed  to  accept  it  j  and, 
though  be  protracted  it  long,  yet  he  did  not,  in 
that  long  Time  of  Delay,  challenge  any  Parts  un- 
til aboutVw'w.  1623. 

3.  *  The  Fanners  refting  fccure  about  that  Pro- 
poiition,  did,  aftet  the  29^  of  Jprily  1621,  divide 
the  whole  Fann  by  Indentures,  allotting  to  each 
Man  his  due  Part,  without  re&r^g  any  for  the 
Lord  Treafurcr.* 

4.  *  At  Chrijlmas,  162J,  the  firft  Year  of  the 
Farm  ended ;  and  this  Year's  Profit  was,  by  Ac- 

'  count,  in  April  1613,  divided  among  the  Partners^ 

referving  no  Share  to  the  Lord  TreaJfurer.' 

5.  '  But  the  Truth  is.  That  all  this  Time  the 
Lord  Trealurer  refted  t^uict,  and  neither  did  nor 
would  challenge  any  Parts;  the  Farm  being  of 
that  fmall  Expe^tion  of  Benefit,  as  five  Partners 

tave  over  their  Parts,  rather  than  they  would  give  . 
ecurity  ;  but,  about  funi  1623,  the  Farm  being 
crown  more  hopeful  by  the  Return  of  fbme  E^ 
In£a  Ships,  the  Lord  Treafurer  having  in  his 
Hands  the  Bufinefs  of  both  Farms,  which  he  had 
fo  long  delayed,  meaning  to  make  this  a  Veil  and 
Cover  for  taking  thofe  corrupt  Gifts,  then  pre- 
tended to  have  four  32  Parts,  which  he  had  waved 
fo  Jong  before.' 

6.  *  The  Lord  Treafurer  appointing  Catchmaj, 
his  Servant,  to  receive  the  1000/-  of  yatai,  which 
was  received  the  27th  of  June,  1623,  forbad  him 
to  give  any  Acquittance  for  the  Money,  but  to  leave 
that  tohimfelf  and  Jacob  ;  which,  had  it  been  paid 
upon  a  plain  Bargain]  he  never  would  hare  done.' 

7.  '  This  Money  was  entered  into  the  Account* 
and  Books  of  the  faid  Farms  ;  for,  in  the  Jour- 
nal Bfloks  of  the  Petty  Farms,  July  31,  1623,

a  Number  of  public  a^d  private  A£^  were  made 
and  palled  in  this  Parliament,  as  fcarce  ever  was 
done  by  any  before.     The  printed  Statutes  only 
mention  35,  Rujhworth,  together,  makes  them  73; 
but,  in  a  Catalogue  of  the  A'ib,  at  the  End  of  me 
Lords  ysuntahy  for  this  Reign,  are  the  Titles  of 
TiS.      This  may   be  fome  way  accounted   for, 
becaufe  no  Ai5ls  at  all  were  pafTeo  in  the  lall  Par- 
liament ;  that  Bufmefs  being  put  a  Stop  to. by  its 
fudden  DiiTolution ;  fo  that  this  took  up  what  the 
Other  had    left  unfinifhcd  ;   and,   both   together*    ' 
made  their  Number  grow  to  fo  great  a'Hei^t. 

There  is  no  Neceility  to  enter  into  theParticu-. 
lars  of  any  of  theie  K&s^  the  mtA  material  of 
them  being  already  printed :  ex(;c|t  the  laft  Bill  of

ceffions,  was  made  ^  diftcuTt  as  to  puWe  bodi 
the  Houfes  in  drawing  1%  up  and  carrying  it  thrDUgh 
the  ufual  Forms.  Never  atw  King  and  Queen'  of 
Enghmdy  before,  did  gjve  L«ave  for  the  parlia- 
ment to  name  and  appoint  their  own  Treafurers 
^d  Commiffioners  for  difburfing  the  Money  to  be 
raifed  by  a  GraRt.  By  what  we  find  in  the  fore- 
going Proceedings,  this  Supply  was  alfo  defigaed  to 
go  for  dje  Recover/  of  the  Palatitatt ;  aiid  the 
King's  voluntary  pfter  of  putting  it  out  of  his  owa 
Power  tjo  touch  a  Penny  of  it,  evidently  fhews  that ' 
he  did  not  flight  his  own  Defcendants,  fo  much  at

WE  now  enter  upon  a  Keign  ivhich 
proved  very  unfiMtanatc  both  to 
Prince  and  People ;   the  former  loft 

hisLile,  and  the  latter  had  their  Lib?V-  .j ^__ 

ties  taken  from  them,  by  a  Sett  of  Men,  whoft  firft  chMielX"" 
Pretences  in  taking  up  Arms  were  to  defend  both. 
Xhe  Difquifition  of  which  Matters,  as  it  has  been 
great  Labour,  in  the  Colloflors,  to  compile,  fo 
■will  it  require  no  Ids  Patience  in  the  Readers  to 
perufe  and  digeft.  The  Inftrumcnts  of  State,  Mef- 
fages.  Declarations,  and  Speech^,  for  and  againft 
the  Prerogative  of  the  Crown,  being,  many  of 
(hem,  long  and  tedious  ;  and  yet  will  allow  of  no 
Abridgement  in  a  Work  of  this  Nature. 

King  Charles  1.  like  his  Father,  began  his  Rpign* 
in  En^and,  at  a  yery  unhappy  Period.     A  dread- 
ful plague  having  been  fome  Time,  and  was  then 
^ging  in  Landen  and  ^eJlminJitTy  and  Parts  adja- 
cent, which  fwept  off  many  Thoufands  of  People,  m,  um\»^t^ 
But  this  did  not  hinder  the  Match  with  fnj««,  with»D»u^wri. 
from  going  forward ;   Mey  i.  the'  Marriage  was  o^^F™"- 
celebrated,    by  Proxy,    at  Paris;    and  yune    II. 
the  new  Queen  landed  at  Dovtr  j  the  next  Day 
die  King  (net  her  at  Caaterhuryt  where  die  Nup^ 
tials  were  compleated. 

Before  this  laft  A^Iair  happened,  a  Parliament  a  PiHuimiw 
had  been  fummoned  to  meet  at  fVeftmit^in-y  oij  Amw  Kc(ni,  ».

rogued to  the  31ft  of  the  faid  Month,  From  that 
Time  it  was  again  prorogugd  to  the  1 3th  ciJuni,anA 
from  thence  to  the  i8th,  which  Prorogations,  we

the  Lords  required  a  prefent   Meeting  with   their

if  it  fuited  their  Conveniency.* 

The  Anfwcr  returned  was,  '  That  the  Com-

as  Intimation  was  given,  that  there  might  be  Oc- 
caiion  for  a  worthy  Member  of  their  Houfe,  in 
delivering  the  Meflage  from  his  Majefty  ;  though 
it  was  againft  the  very  fundamental  Privileges  f^

*  That  the  Duke  dt  Cbeutrtux  importuned  the  • 
King  to  write  that  Letter,  hifnfelf,  in  Favour  of 
Mrs.  Eftmond;  and  he,  as  Secretary,  was  forced 
and  commanded  to  do  it,  rather  than  that  his  Ma-- 
jefty  Ihould.  The  laid  Duke  complained  much  of 
the  Juflices  hard  Carriage  unto  hgr,  but  he  never 
heard  any  thing  of  her  obAinateBehaviourtothem;  ' 

^  nor  of  any  Copes,  nor  Altars^  found  in  hcrHoufej 

wherefore  he  wrote,  alfo,  to  be  advertifed  of  her 
Oftence  by  them,  but  was  not  anfwered  till  within- 
tbcfc  few  Days.' 

*  •  His  Lordihip  protefled  his  Sincerity  to  the  true. 
Religion,  here  eftabliflied ;  whereof  he  had  foitner- 
ly  given  good  Teftimony,  and  in  which  he  would 
perfevere.  And  what  he  did,  ifi  thefe  Matters, 
was  only  to  take  ^wly  all  Scandal  from  the  King, 
though  it  lighted  upon  himfelf  j  and  that  be  did 
nothing  but  what  he  was  firft,  cxprefly,  commando 
ed  to  do  by  the  King.' 

.  The  Lord  Keeper  affirmed,  *  That  he  received 
the  faid  Pardon,  long  before  the  Date  thereof ;  and' 
)F  he  had  made  a  Reeipe  upon  the  Warrant,  as  is 
ufual  in  otherCafes,  it  had  borne  Datewith  that  tho* 
feakd  afterwards.  But,  that  his  LoFdfhip deferred 
the  Sealing  thereof,  in  Hopes  that  the  Embafladon 
TTOuld  have  been  gone  firft,  as  they  were  often  for 

fmng.  But,  they  ftaying,  and  daily  urging  the 
^ing  for  the  Pardon,  he,  being  again  commuid* 
ed,  fealed  it  at  the  next  general  Seal ;  and  fo  it 
had  Date  with  the  Time  of  the  Seal,  and  not  of 
the  Grant.  His  Lordlhip,  well  hoping,  upon  the 
.  Departure  of  the  Embaffadors,  to  have  ftopped  it 
with  his  Majefty,  otherwife  it  had  been  fealed  be- 
fore the  King's  Prom ife  to  the  Parliament;  and 
therefore  this  can  be  no  Breach  of  the  King's  Pro- 
mife.'  His  Lordlhip  alfo  faid,  *  That  theEmbaf- 
£idor  urged  his  Majefty  very  much,  to  give  a  gcne> 
ral  Difpcnfation  to  the  Pafifis ;  but  the  King  was 
advifcd  rather  to  pardon  fnmc  few;  of  them  what- 
was  paft,  ,  Which  Cotinli;l>  though  to  be  com-

mended,  yet  none  gave  way  to  it,  but  much  agalnft  *"■ '  chariei  l 
their  WilU  ;  and  his  Lordfliip  wiftied  that  a  Peti-     '       *^'    , 
tion  might  be  prefented  to  the  King,  to  flay  the 
iike  Pardons  hereafter.' 

Next  follows  in  the  Journals,  a  Copy  of  a  Pe-  ; 
tition  to  the  King,  from  the  Lords  and  Commons, 
repeating  the  aforefaid  Evidences ;  and  that  as  the  ' 
Letter  and  Pardon  were  drawn  from  him  by  the 
Importunity  of  foreign  Embafladors  ;  a  Gourfe,  of' 
late,  too  frequently  pradlifed  by.  his  il]-affe6led  Sub- 
jcifts,  it  was  of  dangerous  Confequence,  inducing 
to  a  Dependency  upon  foreign  Princes,  ttfc.  But 
as  the  whole  of  this. would  be  a  Repetition  of  what 
is  gone  before,  and  befides,  as  it  was  never  pre- 
fented, it  may  well  be  omitted. 

This  previous  Affair  on  Religion  being  fettled, ' 
which  we  find  the  Commons  infifted  on  before  . 
they  would  hear  the  King's  Meffage ;  ■  the  Lord 
,  Keeper,  on  the  fame  Day,  next  proceeded  to  give  _ 
the  reft  of  the  Report  on  what  pafTed  in  the  Con- 
ference, along  with  the  King's  Meffage  and  the' 
Confequence  of  it. 

His  Lordfhip  began  with  telling  the  Houfe,' 
*  That  his  Majeftyiad  gracioufly,  fully,  and  in  k 
Parliamentary  Manner,  anfwered  the  Petition  con-' 
ccrning-  Religion,  delivered  him  by  both  Houfes, 
at  Hampton-Court,  the  7th  Day  of  July  laft ;  and 
had  commanded  his  Lordfhip  to  figni^  to  the  Lords 
and  Commons,  that  he  had  alfo  given  Commahd 
to  the  Lord  Admiral  to  deliver  his  faid  Anfwers' 
thereunto,  to  both  Houfes ;  to  be  by  them  depo- 
fed,  as  the  Anfwers  of  Kings  unto  Petitions,  of" 
that  Itind,  exhibited,  are  wont  to  be.  And  withal' 
Co  deliver  a  MelTage  from  his  Majefty,  concerning 
tbe  great  Affairs  pf  his,  how  in  Agitation  in  the' 
Houfc  of  Commons.' 

That  then  the  Lord  Admiral  faid,  '  His  Ma- 
jefty had  laid  upon  him  fuch  a  Charge ;  as,  when 
he  did  confidcr  his  own  Weaknefs,  it  might  utterly ' 
difcourage  him ;  were  it  not  that  refletSing  again 
upon  that  PlainneiJs  and  Sincerity,  wherein  a  King

Then  the  Kmg  of  5^fl(»  was  fought  and  courted  by  all

King,  looking  into  his  Purfc,  faw  enough  to  do  aS 
the  former  Adtions,  but  not  the  lancr  :  For  when 
he  came  to  confider  the  Navy,  there  was  neither 
Money  nor  Preparations ;  yet,  looking  upon  tbe 
A({^rs  of  Chrijiendom^  he  found  this  the  moft  ne- 
ceflary.  Hereupon  his  Majefly,  of  famous  Me- 
mory, did  his  Grace  that  Honour  as  to  write  to  him 
from  Newmarket  10  LonJan,  s  Letter  to  this  ES«^ 

*  That,  obferving  foreign  AfFairs,  he  found  it  ne- 
'  ceflary  that  a  Royal  Fleet  fbould  be  prqared,  and 
<  put  ill  Readinefs ;  but  that  he  had  no  Mon^  : 

*  Wherefore  his  Lordfhip  and  his  Friends  mufl  lav 

*  out,  and,  no  doubt,  others  would  follow.     Andy 

*  by  this  Means,  the  King  might  the  longer  lie 

*  concealed  and  undifcovered  in  the  Enterprise,  as 

*  bearing  the  Name  of  the  Subjefis  only  ;  and  odier 

*  Princes,  in  hopes  to  drawhimon,  would  fooner 

*  come  to  the  Bufmcfs.' 

'  That,  upon  this  Letter,  his  Grace  leap'd  into 
the  AAion  with  all  Alacrity ;  and,  having  received 
all  he  had  from  his  Majelly,  wasdetirous,  and  held 
it  a  Happinefs,  to  pour  it  out  again  upon  his  Service 
and  Occalions,  But  this  he  did  not  on  hts  own 
Head,  but  fortified  by  the  Advice  and  Counfeta  of 
thefe  worthy  Perfons,  the  Lord  Ctmuay^  the  Lord

who  laid'there  openly,  his  Majelly  being  prefenf. 
That  if  this  was  put  in  Execution,  it  would  do 
well }  and  gave  fome  Attributes  to  it.' 

Here  Sir  Jghn  Cook  juftilied  the  fliewing  and 
approving  of  their  Accounts,  at  the  Council  Table; 
that  thofe  Accounts  confifted  of  long  Particulars  for 
Soldiers  to  be  levied,  Mariners  to  be  prelled,  For- 
wardneJa  of  the  Ships  and  ProvilionS,  and  that  no* 
thing  was  wanted  but  Money ;  and  that  he  had 
all  thofe  Particulars  ready  to  be  {hewn  to  the  Houfe 
of  Commons,  if  they  Oiould  require  them. 
'  ■  His  Grace  then  proceeded  and  (hewed,  *  That  he 
wasfo  religions  to  guide  thefe  great  Affairs  byCoun- 
Ibl,  that,  at  his  Journey  into  Framty  which  feU 
out  about  this  Time,  he  dcfired  his  Majefty  to  re-^ 
commend  theBuiinefs  to  a  fclei^  Committee  of  the

furer,  the  Lord  Chamberlain,  the  Lords  Ctmuay 
and  Brooi,  who,  in  his  Abfence,  took  Care  of  the 
fame.  This  his  Grace  thought  fit  to  tell  their 
Lordfllips,  t:iat  they  may  fee  by  what  Counfel  this  i 

great  fiufiitelf  was  carried }  and  that,  in  all  the

Krftt  Becaufe  that  great  Enemy  would  be  more

Here  Sir  John  Ctok  interpofed,  tho'  he  had  already

that  ihould  make  him  bluQi  whcnhe  met  his  Par-
